  • Following intersessions and breaks, ineligible students return to being ineligible. Students can regain eligibility at the end of the grace period if they are passing.
  • During spring break, all students are academically eligible.
  • All students are eligible through the summer.
  • Total credits determine the first 2021-22 six-week eligibility for 9-12 students.
  • To be eligible, students must be passing all classes at the end of a grading period. An “i” (incomplete) recorded as a grade is considered a failing grade until a passing grade is recorded.
